MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he would back Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, even though he endorsed Ted Cruz.

Walker told reporters Wednesday that he will support whoever is the nominee, even if it’s Trump. Trump criticized Walker and his record as governor while campaigning in Wisconsin, a state that Cruz won by 13 points.

Walker endorsed Cruz the week before Wisconsin’s April 5 election, cut a television ad and campaigned alongside him.

Walker had repeatedly said before he endorsed Cruz that he would support whoever gets the GOP nomination. His spokesman Joe Fadness said Tuesday that nothing had changed.

On Wednesday Walker stressed that he remains a big backer of Cruz, but that any Republican would be preferable to Democrat Hillary Clinton as president.
